Unfortunately you can’t guarantee it and we can’t move you into the same start pen HOWEVER if you select a specific time as your predicted finish time, for example 2 hours 3 minutes, there is a higher chance of being in the same pen than if you select a more commonly selected finish time like 2 hours exactly.

The course is measured by IAAF course certified measurers. GPS devices are not as accurate as many runners believe. Even if you had a perfectly accurate GPS device, you should expect it to record a distance slightly longer than the official length. For example, when you factor in the crowds and the water stops, it is nearly impossible to run the shortest possible path that the certifier takes when measuring the course.
The timing chip is disposable, you do not need to return it to us.
